Adult and Community Education funding

Community-based organisations can apply for funding to help people develop foundation skills in language, literacy, numeracy, computing and personal skills.

Community-based learning

Community-based learning can boost people's skills and confidence, leading to renewed interest and the ability to participate in formal education and training, volunteering or work.

Classes are delivered in easy to access, informal community settings and delivers both accredited and non-accredited training.

Adult and Community Education providers

Adult and Community Education providers are not-for-profit, community-based groups which are able to demonstrate that they have adult education and training as a key focus. They are located in communities across the state and provide low or no cost training in the development of foundation skills.
